Which Program? There is a difference between Burn and Copy.
Copy means you have a CD or DvD that already has something on it such as a music CD or a movie DvD and you want to copy it. The system normally reads the CD or DvD and copies the contents to disk then asks you to put in a blank CD or DvD to make the copy.
Burn means you have Data Files, Documents or Music that is already on the disk drive and you want to put it on a Cd or DvD. Normally you just put in a blank CD or DvD then either Drop and Drag, Browse or Copy and Paste the files you want on the CD or DvD.
Hello, With windows 7 or vista it is very simple. Insert the empty disc in the tray. After a few second you should get a pop up asking you what you will lie to do. Chose burn files to the CD/DVDA window should open up. All you need to do now is drag and drop the files or folders to that windows.Once your done, hit the Eject button and windows will prepare the disc and you done!
You have to burn the files to a CD, if you have Windows XP or Vista it should do this for you, the reason you are getting the error is because unlike the hard drive, the CD is not a read / write device (ie once you copy files there they are there forever, unless you are using a re-recordable cd) You must have a CD drive that is capable of recording data, this will be a CDRW or a DVDRW drive, most computers now have these, but if yours is only a DVDRom or a CDROM, you will not be able to copy.
To burn files to disc, Put a CD in the drive Then get all the files you want to copy and put them in a folder (saves time) Now click on the CD drive icon in MY computer (right click and open) Drag the contents of the folder you created onto the cd drive which you have opened You may get asked to format the disc, this is normal (prepare the disc) You will then see the files you have added (says "files ready to be burned to disc") Right mouse click on the empty space in the area where the files have been added and a menu will come up, with the command "burn to disc" Once complete the disc will eject and you need to press finish
are you burning a cd or dvd? burning a cd is pretty easy...windows will do most of the work for you. put a blank cd in your cd rom/ dvd burner drive. it will ask you what you want to do with the blank cd...vista usually asks you to format the disk...select ok.....a blank box will pop up....drag and drop your files to be burned into the blank box.....once you are done putting your media onto the disc....eject the disk...before the drive opens a box at the bottom of the screen says that the disc is being prepared for use on other computers. when it ejects, it should be done....you can try to put it back in to the cd drive and see if your data/media files are on the disc. ......now burning a dvd is alot more complicated....do you have software for burning dvd media? if you do, they have help me files and tutorials........some more good advice....youtube also shows good tutorial vids on burning. just type in "burn a cd or dvd".
In Windows Vista or windows 7 you can just drag and drop them to the DVD or CD (you can drag and drop to cd even in XP)
Just select files that you want to burn - right click on them and select option "send to " -> CD/DVD
You wil see a popup on the right bottom corner that will prompt yuo if you want to burn these files.
Just click on that and click "Burn" in the opened window.
Windows XP CD Copy
Windows XP has CD-Recordable (CD-R) disc burning support for most CD writers. First set your CD-recording options:
Open "My Computer"
Right-click your CD-R drive and select "Properties". See figure BK-1.
Select the "Recording" tab (if this tab isn't available, your device doesn't support CD burning).
Check the box to "Enable CD recording on this drive".
Select the drive to hold the temporary files (before the system burns a CD-R disc, the system writes the files to be recorded to an intermediary area - this area must have enough free space to hold an entire CD's content).
Select the CD recording speed (Fastest, 4X, 2X, and 1X).
Select whether to eject the media after recording.
Perform the following steps to record to a CD-R:
Insert a blank CD-R disc into your CD burner.
Copy or drag the files or folders to be recorded to the CD-R drive, or right-click on the files or folders and select Send To, Writable CD.
After you have copied all the files, select the CD-R drive from "My Computer" and you'll see the waiting files as "Files to add to the CD."
Right-click the CD-R drive, and select Write to CD.
Enter a name for the CD-R disc, and click Next.
The files will be written to the CD-R disc.
After the system writes all the files, it will eject the CD-R disc (if you chose that option above).
